you could use the OSC implementation for python by daniel holth (or 
write your own if you are into doing stuff yourself). I am not sure 
about the URL for the latest version but i could send it to you if you 
want. Its just few ks.
Its basically what you are trying to do but its already done and it 
follows the OSC protocol. This means that you could use it to comunicate 
to many other programs that understand OSC such as MAX, Supercolider 
etc... with the same python script.

But you need to install the OSC external for pd

Alternatively we have created a very simple interface to this 
implementation for non experienced users and students on top of Daniels 
implmentation. It makes it very straight forward to use. Its reduced to 
very basic commands so you dont have to deal with sockets and so on . 
Again i could post this as well if you are interested.
